The Rev. David E. Bumbaugh in his article in the summer 2011 issue of UU world asked the following question: “If we are to be the religious movement some of us dreamed 50 years ago, if we are to respond to the needs of the world from a liberal religious basis, it is critical that we be able to address and the answer three central questions: what do we believe? Whom do we serve? To whom or what are we responsible?”
Charles will explore the first question, “What do we believe?” We pride ourselves on being a denomination without dogma. But underlying our principles and whether we be theists, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists or whatever, there is a core belief and it is expressed mightily in the songs and hymns that we sing.
